Episode Info:

In the first round of Uruguay’s presidential election on Oct. 27, voters changed the political makeup of parliament and nearly passed a referendum that would have allowed the government to get tougher on crime, as homicides and thefts continue to rise. The left-leaning Frente Amplio has held a majority for the last 15 years, but those days are over. The party’s candidate, Daniel Martínez faces a close race in the runoff with Luis Lacalle Pou, a candidate in the conservative Partido Nacional. RadioLAND producer Alanna Elder reports on the results of the first round and what we can expect in the second round on Nov. 24.

Guests: Carlos Demasi, Mariana Rodríguez, Nicolás Saldías, Diego Sanjurjo and Ignacio Villar. Reporter: Alanna Elder. Hosts: Colleen Connolly and Cameron Oakes. Producer: Alanna Elder. LAND editor: Colleen Connolly.

Music: Focus by A A Alto (https://www.freemusicarchive.org/music/A_A_Aalto), Shameless Life Wisdom Sendoff by pATCHES (YouTube Audio Library), Last Train to Mars by Dan Lebowitz (YouTube Audio Library)and a mix by Dax on the Trax.
